Help - ATV is killing my bandwidth
I'm on a 12M/1M down/up link.
When I shutdown ATV I'm getting bandwidth reading which is pretty close to the above, with sub 50ms ping (based on speedtest.net).
When I turn it on, I get a few hundreds ms ping, and bandwidth which goes down and down until I almost feel like back to the happy days of dial-up.
Doing netstat I get a ZILLION entries which I really can't explain.
Could the box have been hacked?
Is it Boxee (even when turned off) talking to all the apps it has?
Added: netstat output can be viewed here: https://docs.google.com/document/edi...FydXmLBA&hl=en
Added: Come to think of it, most likely the amount of the connections is due to Transmission Bittorrent running. I paused all my torrents and it seems like it's better.
I'm leaving the question here just in case someone has more comments / ideas how to secure the box further.
Using the automatic start
I'm using the automatic start as described in Transmission on AppleTV - AwkwardTV

And what is the bandwidth usage effect?
Makes sense, but also raises a question if these connections still eat my bandwidth, and if so why and what could be done to prevent that.
